The BioTfueL® technology is the result of one of the main partnerships in the advanced biofuels field. The consortium constructed and successfully operated the world’s largest BTL demonstration units securing, integrating and optimizing each process step together from the biomass pre-treatment to the final fuels. The result is a robust, mature, scaled-up technology that can produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel, Renewable Naphtha, and Renewable Diesel through the Gasification and Fischer-Tropsch route

CLIMATE CHANGE, CHANGE IT BACK
When we look at our industry today, we see the industry of tomorrow. We want a world where the manufacturing industry produces circularly. In our belief this is the only way our industry can continue to provide our growing world population with everything it needs, without harming life on earth ever again.
To achieve this, a new industrial revolution is needed. Perpetual Next aims to be a catalyst, pacesetter and advocate for this. We want to make great strides in the fight against climate change. Because the simple truth is: we won’t have a beautiful new planet if we don’t provide for a beautiful new industry.
WE ARE PERPETUAL NEXT
We are a climate technology company that retrieves carbon and gas from organic waste. With our technologies, we help industries around the world become fossil-free and circular. With our 135 employees and six own production facilities, we work daily on and with solutions to combat climate change.
Perpetual Next is organised into three business units (BUs), each with their own specialisms, dedicated teams and their own strategic partners and customers.
Bio-conversions: Our Bio-conversions business unit focuses on the development and acquisition of companies where low-quality organic residual materials are converted into sustainable products, like heat, electricity, biogas, green gas and fertilizers. We work with a wide variety of residual materials, including pruning and garden waste, but also waste from the food processing industry. We use various existing technologies that we have optimized for this.
Biocarbon: Our Biocarbon business unit produces renewable carbon from bio-residues such as forestry residues, scrap wood, etc. A technology that we have perfected in our unique carbon converter technology. This is a process of thermochemical conversion of organic waste in an oxygen-poor environment.
Developments: Our Developments business unit mainly focuses on gasification of renewable carbon from local agri-residual flows . Syngas is created from gasification which can form the basis for products for the chemical industry. By means of downstream technology, the syngas can also be converted into products for shipping and utilities, such as methanol, hydrogen and green gas.

C.F. Nielsen is the leading manufacturer of mechanical briquetting presses. We supply briquetting solutions all over the world for many different purposes. Mostly our presses are sold for production of industrial-type briquettes for use in heating plants or gasifiers or to make log-type briquettes to be used in fireplaces and ovens by private consumers. Our Mechanical press is suitable for making briquettes used in gasifiers due to its flexibility regarding briquette’s shape, form, and density. Furthermore, our Mechanical press can handle most types of biomasses. This flexibility is something that is essential within the gasification process. We have delivered several briquetting projects for this industry over the last 10 years. Through the development of machines, C.F. Nielsen created a culture which still exists today – the development and production of machines in close contact with customers. We work closely with our customers to ensure that our solutions meet their demands and expectations, why most briquetting presses and solutions are tailor-made to our customers. C. F. Nielsen was founded in 1889 by Carl Frederik Nielsen and started out as a traditional blacksmith shop and later expanded to include an iron foundry. In the 1930s, C.F. Nielsen started their production of customed machines for local farmers, and during the 1940s, the first briquetting press was designed. After 100 years of being a family-owned business, C.F. Nielsen was sold in 1998 to Henning M. Larsen. Under his leadership, the company continued to grow and expand internationally. In the following years, the production facilities were expanded, to make more room to produce briquetting presses. In 2007, Mogens Sloth Knudsen and DKA Capital A/S acquired C.F. Nielsen A/S. In 2011, Henning M. Larsen and Mogens Sloth Knudsen acquired all shares and in 2018, the company was acquired by RUF Briquetting Systems. Today C.F. Nielsen and RUF Briquetting Systems offer all three briquette technologies: mechanical, extruder, and hydraulic. In which C.F. Nielsen produces the Mechanical- and Extruder press.
GIDARA Energy is a Dutch technology-based energy company focused on converting non-recyclable waste into syngas, a clean and incredibly versatile source of energy by using patented technologies. Their first plant in Amsterdam will produce an average of 87.5 KTA (kilotons per annum) of renewable methanol from 175 KTA local non-recyclable waste. AMA includes a testing facility, knowledge centre and full plant producing advanced methanol that meets the European biofuel mandate (RED II, June 2021) as well as local, Dutch legislation. The plant is expected to be fully operational in 2023, with objectives to contribute to better fuels and a circular economy. AMA will be working in close cooperation with local partners and several universities.
